David

This is my grandfather Dave. He was a Westinghouse electrical engineer during WWII, a puppeteer, cartoonist, and muralist. Unlike his serious father Francis, Dave was lighthearted, cheerful and juvenile, but just as quirky and eccentric. He handlettered everything in his house, and was always busy making or inventing something. He was rebellious, and refused to do anything the way everybody else did it. He loved Mexican art and visiting schools to teach art and puppetry. I am realizing how much I'm like him.
